OKAY THERE WAS A POST THAT MENTIONED TWO OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS, GERITA AND FENCING, AND NOW I HAVE TO EXPLAIN HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS IS
okay speaking as a fencer, italy would be fantastic! for one thing, french and italian fencers are fuCKING VICIOUS ALRIGHT THAT’S WHERE THE ALL THE TRUE FENCING MASTERS COME FROM and hetalia’s all about the stereotypes so there you go!
i think he’d be one of those bouncy fencers (fucking bouncy fencers) who’s lightning fucking fast and and impossible to hit because he’s always on you in a flash. italy’s pretty slight, so he’d be a difficult target to hit anyway, and even so, he’d also probably be one of those twinkletoes who leaps backwards fucking like three ft. when attacked so that the only way you get him is literally to run after him
and germany! ha
he’d be a really average fencer man
he’s super bulky and fencing is an agility sport, so he’d probably be one of those guys who doesn’t move much and doesn’t have his knees quite bent enough and doesn’t parry quite fast enough etc.
plus he’s huge i mean god you might as well put a fucking neon sign on him that says STAB ME RIGHT THE FUCK HERE
and it’d take a moment or two before he realized what happened right after italy scored a touch ^v^
